HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Woodbridge and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Woodbridge property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Woodbridge property's condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a building close to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms including domestic refuse disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include hazardous chemicals. Health concerns such as downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will note structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological databases as well as Suffolk Coastal Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of brown asbestos boiler cupboard being found in property. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials for example paper lining. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in painted over ceilings. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken however, not to break it and expert advice must be taken without delay. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will mention possible asbestos and will advise accordingly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Woodbridge. Is there any brick chimney maintenance tips we should be aware of?? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-built Woodbridge buildings demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also be subject to a number of issues, such as moisture damage. Your surveyor in Woodbridge should report on these. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. A local builder should be able to assist. Call A D S Bricklaying & Stonework Specialists, Brookside Cottage/Bath Road, Langford, Bristol, BS40 5DN on 01934 852511 for a quote for repair work.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornate Della Robbia bond paving.
